This issue of Perspectives focuses on the social construct of “White privilege,” which, simply put, refers to unearned advantages based on race. Before delving into this issue of Perspectives, it is well to remember that all of us, whether we know it or not, are privileged in some way or another. Any given discussion of privilege could just as well be modified as “male privilege,” “heterosexual privilege,” “Judeo-Christian privilege,” or my personal favorite, “right-handed privilege.” Ironically, benefactors of any sort of privilege hardly ever notice their advantage, just as right-handed individuals hardly ever think about how the normative setup favors them while disadvantaging their left-handed counterparts.
